"Blood" as written by Stone C. Gossard, Jeffrey Allen Ament, Eddie Jerome Vedder, Mike Mccready and David Abbruzzese....
Spin me round roll me over fuckin' circus
Stab it down one way needle pulled so slowly
Drains and spills soaks the pages fills their sponges
It's my blood

Paint Ed big, Turn Ed into, One of his enemies,
It's my blood

Stab it down fill the pages suck my life out
Maker of my enemies,
Take, my,
Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck

    General CommentThe lyrics also seem to allude to certain magazines that 'used' him. "Spin me around"-Spin magazine "Roll me over"-Rolling Stone "Fucking Circus"-Circus Magazine.

    Eddie also seems to use a lot of double meanings in his songs. "Paint Ed big. Turn Ed into one of his enemies." changes easily to 'Painted big, turned into one of his enemies'. Eddie has said that it became so bad that he started to hate seeing his face in magazines whereas, in the beginning of his career it was a source of novelty.

    General CommentI can agree with the anti-media interpretation - it was where the band was at the time. It reminds me of a PJ concert where a girl shouted something like "I love you, Eddie!" and Ed Ved lost it and said something like "You don't love ME, you love who you think I am, this fantasy persona you've created in your head", and went on to rant about how Beth and him were about to celebrate their ten year anniversary.

    If Eddie and Kurt had one thing in common, it's that they hated being loved for who they weren't. This song definately touches on that theme.

    General Commenti think this is a very powerfull song about the music industry and how they just drained eddie in the begining of his carrer and how allot of the music out there is just manufactured feelings by what the record label wants to sell but ed is saying that his lyrics are his blood if you dont like what hes talking about you dont like him or what hes going through

    General CommentI agree, but I think it's really ironic the way that Eddie thought that the biz was draining his creative lifeblood, yet his hatred toward them created this ass-kicking album...this is one throttling good song.

    General Commentyeah i agree what u guys have said, its one of the loud songs, he hate media and how they cirticis him, he`s paying his life time to do what he`s doing, so he doesnt want his life time to be an enemy he hate, which is him self on magazines...

    General CommentI agree, I like the way that it seems like the music industry has taken his blood and used it to forge cheesy pop knock-offs.

    The song always reminds me of cloning and transfusions because of the name

    General Comment"I find it amazing that Pearl Jam could play such angst-ridden, angry songs like this one and still pull off great, captivating ballads like "Off He Goes"

    that looks familiar
